This course is a skill-building course that provides you with a basic understanding of AC and DC motor and drive concepts and terminology. At the completion of this course, you will have the necessary fundamental knowledge and skills required to attend other Rockwell Automation AC and DC drives courses.
During class, you will gain the hands-on skills required to build a miniature DC motor and investigate how a variable-speed drive controls the speed and direction of an attached motor. You will also become familiar with the drive's Human Interface Module (HIM), which allows programmers, maintainers, and troubleshooters access to information stored within the drive.
This course will provide you with a broad-based set of skills and knowledge that apply to AC and DC motors and drives. Although this course will not give you all the skills needed to program, maintain, or troubleshoot an AC or DC drive, it will prepare you for the Rockwell Automation courses that emphasize those skills.
Individuals new to the control of AC and DC motors using drives who need to gain a fundamental understanding of motor and drive concepts before they learn to program, maintain, and/or troubleshoot AC and DC drives should attend this course.
To successfully complete this course, the following prerequisites are required:
Familiarity with the use of electrical measuring tools is helpful, but is not required.
Class begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 4:30 p.m. Times are approximate. Due to COVID-19, the classes may be held at an offsite location near the branch listed on the schedule. Exact times and the location of the class will be sent in your confirmation email from Rockwell Automation.
